About the Exhibition:

“A Father and His Two Sons: The Art of Forgiveness” features more than 40 original pieces inspired by the Parable of the Prodigal Son, found in Luke 15. This exhibition features a wide variety of works including paintings, prints, ceramics and other media.

First Pres is pleased to host this exhibition throughout the Lenten season and invites people of all faith backgrounds to come and reflect on these pieces and the powerful themes of grace and forgiveness inspired by this rich parable.

This exhibition is on loan from the Calvin College permanent collection, and was originally compiled and donated by Larry and Mary Gerbens from their private collection.
